Free Floating Music

Free Floating

Simplicity and repose are the qualities that measure the true value of any work of art.
–Frank Lloyd Wright

We should listen to the silence with the same attention that we give to the sounds.
–John Cage

Free Floating Music exists to release and promote serene, peaceful ambient music, music that grows out of and flows through the silence around it, sculpting spaces for reflection, repose and rejuvenation.

All music released through Free Floating Music is available for free download via Creative Commons non-commercial licenses.

If there is a core, an artistic and emotional center to the music released by Free Floating, then Daniel Robert Lahey’s music is there. I consider his music (breathing may surprise, tonalchemy and now gravity’s kiss) to be the prototypical examples of what I think Free Floating music is.  Daniel’s music creates this aural space that is lush and deep, yet very simple and immediate at the same time. There is real depth to his knowledge of traditional musical structures, yet he is wise...

Here's something I wrote in 2010 regarding the original release of Strange Skies:  Back when I was doing my radio show on Stillstream, I was dedicated to finding as much new music as I could, so I would find and listen to a lot of music. Some was good, some was fair, some was awful. But then there were some albums that I would keep coming back to. Even as new music appeared for me to play, I would be drawn to certain releases that just rose above the rest.  To me, Strange Skies is one of...

I am drawn to the intimacy implicit in this collection by Magnetic Wind. The titles (and indeed the inspiration noted by the artist) inform us that this music explores the desire for closeness and relationship. These are, in essense, ambient love songs; I Want to Hold Your Hand via Brian Eno, if you will. Of course this music is really more mature in its approach to love than the adolescent angst of the early Beatles. Perhaps its more akin to an ambient take on George Harrison's Something from...

The Sutra of the Heart of the Lady Perfection of Wisdom Thus have I heard. At one time Lord Buddha was staying at Vulture Peak Mountain in Rajagriha, with a great gathering of the monastic sangha and the bodhisattva sangha. At the same time, noble Avalokiteshvara, the bodhisattva mahasattva, was looking right at the experience of the profound perfection of wisdom and he saw the five groups to be empty of nature. Then, through the power of the Buddha, venerable Shariputra said to noble...

For me this release by Mirada is a lesson in listening. In my initial listening to the work after I received it, I didn't really know what was going on in the pieces.  There seemed to me to be little to no movement.  I found them moderately interesting as atmospheres, but wasn't entirely moved by them. For a (brief) while I considered passing on releasing them through Free Floating.  I thought about sending Mark (Heath, AKA Mirada) to submit the work to the Complex Silence series or some...

There are several reasons why I am especially glad to be releasing Tange's I Will Tell The Audient Void on Free Floating.  First is that Gordie (AKA Gordon MacMillan AKA Tange) is just a really nice guy. I only really know him through the digital realm; having chatted in the Stillstream chatroom, interacted occasionally on Facebook, and exchanged emails. But each time I have come away with an impression of Gordie as a just a really straightforwardly good guy.  Second is that I now have an...
